Leslie TuckerWhile dealing with the passing of two loved ones, I became a student at TIU to try to pick up the pieces of my life. TIU not only provided a great learning institution, but also a family atmosphere where I was encouraged and even allowed to let the healing begin. I am an overcomer because TIU is helping me to recognize it.
